As a public charity that relies on the support of its volunteers, donors, partners, and employees to achieve its mission, Binaytara Foundation needs and greatly appreciates your interest in getting involved with its projects.
If you share our values and would like to join our efforts, here are some ways you can contribute:
Donate & fundraise
Donating and fundraising to support our mission is an excellent way to help us realize our vision of bringing much-needed cancer care to every community worldwide, one cancer hospital at a time.
Join our education academy
If you are an oncology clinician interested in contributing to our continuing education program, please consider joining our education committee. The committee is tasked with planning and evaluating our educational activities.
Join our Journal editorial board
The International Journal of Cancer Care & Delivery (IJCCD) is an open-source, peer-reviewed journal that publishes scientific articles focused on innovative solutions to improve access to cancer care.
Volunteer for our Global Oncology Program
Binaytara Foundation’s Global Oncology program focuses on developing programs, services, human resources, and infrastructure in communities where cancer care is minimal or non-existent. Since 2007, we have successfully administered and supported several highly impactful global oncology programs in Nepal and India, including the establishment of the country’s first bone marrow transplant center in Nepal, and capacity building for a state-wide hospice and palliative care program in all 51-districts of Madhya Pradesh, India.
Our most ambitious and perhaps the most-needed project is establishing a cancer hospital in Nepal’s Madhesh Province. Established in 2018, the Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center in Janakpurdham, Nepal, is a 25-bed cancer hospital serving over 6 million people of Madhesh Province and several million more in the nearby Indian State of Bihar.
What Does It Take To Fight Cancer When The Nearest Cancer Hospital Is 8-Hours Away?
Well, for cancer patients in Nepal’s Province 2, fighting cancer meant traveling 8-hours by bus to the nearest cancer hospital where most providers do not speak your language.
For them, it meant leaving your loved ones behind to fight cancer alone, in a place where you cannot speak the local language, and you do not understand the culture, and you do not know what is going on with your health.
Contribute to The Cancer News
The Cancer News is an authoritative resource for news about cancer. The site features expert opinions on key research, updates about FDA approvals, information about cancer disparities, and a patient corner, among other updates.
The Cancer News is currently accepting inquiries from oncology clinicians, researchers, healthcare communication professionals, and journalists to join its team of contributors and editors.
Participate in our educational conferences
Binaytara Foundation is one of the largest in-person accredited oncology continuing education (CME) providers in the United States. We host oncology conferences throughout the United States featuring oncology clinicians from community and academic practices, as well as researchers, industry professionals, and other stakeholders at local, regional, and national levels.
Donate an auction item to our fundraising gala
Donating an item to auction at our annual fundraising gala is a great way to support our fundraising efforts. The Binaytara Foundation Annual Auction & Gala is held every April alongside our Annual Summit on Cancer Health Disparities, a nationally recognized cancer disparities summit attended by key stakeholders from across the spectrum of cancer care. The funds raised from this gala benefit our global oncology programs.
Hear what media legend the late Larry King had to say about our Annual Cancer Health Disparities Summit and his call to support the Binaytara Foundation Cancer Center in Nepal.
Larry King was scheduled to moderate the debate titled – “Single Payer Versus Multi-payer Healthcare System in America” at Binaytara Foundation’s 2019 Summit on Cancer Health Disparities. However, due to his ongoing health issues, Mr. King had been hospitalized just days before the Summit and was unable come. He sent this video message to encourage the participants of the summit and his fans to support the Binaytara Foundation and help to build the cancer hospital in Nepal.
